The notion of a Smart Factory today is based on utilizing modern IIoT concepts. These include technologies and best practices that allow for seamless machine interoperability, easy data sharing between machines, MES, ERP, and SCADA systems. The Smart Factory must also include capabilities that allow for modern operator safety concepts, data security, integrity and trustworthiness.
While it is not practical for existing brown fields to immediately modernize and adopt all these technologies and best practices, it is however possible for factories to cherry pick individual technologies and practices as a path to gradually modernize over time. This talk will provide an overview of some of these technologies and will also discuss the new industry standards that make such a migration possible.Participate in this webinar if you are looking for answers to any of these questions?
